Julia Marlow

Biography

Julia advises on the interface between business and government. She works with clients on both sides of that interface, on the development and implementation of new government policies, legislation and regulation, and on judicial review challenges. Julia's clients operate in a range of industries, including energy, financial services, pharmaceuticals, telecoms and transport. 

Whether she is assisting clients in shaping policy or regulations that affect their business, or is advising public bodies on sound decision-making, Julia's goal is to achieve her client's objectives without having to go to court wherever possible. While judicial review can be a useful tool for making sure that all relevant matters are taken into account when government bodies are developing new policy or law, it can be expensive and time-consuming. However, litigation can often be avoided if businesses and government communicate constructively at the earliest possible stage in the decision-making process, when policies are still being formulated and the possible impact of a decision is still being assessed. However, when litigation is the best available means to achieve a client's aims, Julia â?? who is a qualified solicitor advocate â?? is able to draw on her experience of acting for clients in high-profile and complex judicial review challenges. 

While at Hogan Lovells, Julia went on secondment to Ofgem's legal team, the UK energy regulator. While there she advised Ofgem on the implementation of a new Government scheme to encourage the use of renewable energy, working closely alongside the legal team in the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
